I have annexed hereto a Copy thereof from my Books, ballance due thee $150.80/100, that if it be all correct, as it should be thou mayst advise me, or if otherwise, that mutually between us, it may be known to be correct. Sarah shews me the Letters from Sister Charity, but I seldom see, what she writes to her enquiring Aunt, because i am not solicitous, about it. To thee & to Sister also, I do not feel a want or inclination, to fill a sheet of paper, provided I was settled in the belief that to you & to myself it would produce an open door of Entrance, into the abodes of mutual serenity & Peace, which latterly in particular I have not been able to come at, but in silent retirement, that is passing along without such conversations, that fter the expressions are passed from me, do not feel of a Savory reflection thereon, bu rather are for a while at least, an obstruction in the way of returning to a quiet, abode for the mind to rest in, as to me it has been lately, more evidently necessary than ever to get out of the passing Converse & removed from the strife of Tongues, into Silence for I believe most assuredly, that Silence of itself practiced, from expression, would have a beneficial tendency & that being in this practice from Conviction, the Savour would come to us individually even in the midst of Company, more precious than can be by any of us attained to, in these days, when tis so common to speak, without knowing our words to be seasoned, with that which will gently lead us, either individually when alone, or in Company of our friends to the enjoyment of that peace at times in measure resembling, that Peace, in which desires arise, we may be favored to possess beyond the Grave. I have written the above, chiefly intended as an apology for my not giving you an Account of any occurrences here, which in several instances, I have endeavoured to commit to writing, with a view of informing my friends which not havng after writing solidly pleasing sensations to my mind, I have been satisfeid to suppress. Wm & Deborah are, with Sarah Thomas & myself, thru Mercy, continued in about usual health & they all unite in Love to their Uncle & Aunt with Thy Affectionate Brother, Samuel R Fisher from 6th to 9th Inst we had severe Cold, Winter indeed without snow, or very little Snow, since which the weather has much moderated.
